Diving into Chloe & the Brainwaves’ latest single, “Mind Running Wild,” is a bit like stumbling into an enchanted forest at the height of spring—it’s dark, yes, with its twisted roots and thick shadows mirroring a child’s trauma endured in silence—but look closer and you’ll see flecks of light dappling through. It’s this juxtaposition that Chloe harnesses in her haunting voyage through heartache towards healing.
The indie rock backbone gives us that familiar comfort—a rhythm that has our feet tapping almost instinctively—while those silky female vocals thread through your soul like silver needles pulling along glinting threads of hope. Those catchphrases we all toss around—’super catchy,’ ‘earworm material’—they’re justified here more than ever as Chloe twists hooks into artful sculptures, making choruses you’ll hum long after the song ends.
Yet it’s not just about melodic pleasure; there’s poetry threaded within those notes. Each chord progression carries weight—the heaviness of past pains coupled with the lightness of newfound strength—and let me tell you, few artists can walk that line without tumbling into cliché pits or overwrought melodrama.
As for production? Spot on! With pristine clarity playing tag with raw edges enough to remind us this isn’t just studio polish but real human emotion poured out, spilled over six strings and microphone mesh.
“Mind Running Wild” might well be a diary page ripped out and set to music for others festering similar wounds—that emptiness and shame—to find solace within its sound waves. And in doing so it becomes less about what made us broken but rather what makes us defiantly dance amidst our ghosts. So go ahead: play it loud and let their spirits sway too because this track by Chloe & her gang is bound to resonate deep within any wild-running mind seeking some semblance of peace amidst life’s dissonant chords.
